END OF TERM is a shrewd and touching impression of an English prep school in which cricket, current affairs, and small boys lugging chairs about for an open-air production of THE TEMPEST form a craft and affectionate collage of Britain's green and prosperous years.

Philip Jakes on END OF TERM, The Sunday Telegraph, 1964  


END OF TERM puts a prep school in Kent under gentle scrutiny. For 25 minutes she taps shrewdly away, via rehearsals of THE TEMPEST and boys writing their weekly letters home, at that nostalgic nerve still trilling away behind many an Englishman's habitual sang froid. Not so much a documentary as a way of life.
